This stands 8¼" (21 cm) tall. The bowl diameter is nearly 7" (17.5 cm). The decor is made up of blood-red spatters with light purple veining in a clear ground. The bowl is supported by three buttressed black glass feet. The entire piece, bowl and feet, has been given an acid bath and has a velvety matte surface. Near the bottom of the bowl there is a gold enamel stamped "Czechoslovakia" provenance mark - a mark that is being called the "smile" mark though because it is on a curved surface seems to bend the other way.
I have seen this decor on another shape so I'm thinking that whoever made this had a design line to go with it.
